    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Lionsgate

    Pros

    There are some really great employees who take time to invest in the interns and make sure they are having a rewarding experience (not just copying pages and delivering mail). Good perks.

    Cons

    Like a lot of the entertainment industry, the pay isn't great for assistants and other lower level employees

    Great benefits, great people - advancement can be slow at the lower level

    Current Employee - Coordinator in Santa Monica, CA
    Current Employee - Coordinator in Santa Monica, CA

    I have been working at Lionsgate full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great access and interaction with executives. Very open atmosphere and if you have a good (non-cynaca)l attitude you'll be respected by your co-workers. Management is approachable (company Pres makes point to mingle with assistants at company outings) and cares about employees, and huge egos are not as widely tolerated as compared to other studios. Great stock option programs, 401k, and excellent communication with HR.

    Cons

    Advancement (especially from an assistant level) can be slow, and salaries at the entry level are slightly below that of the industry standard; however, generous bonuses end up balancing it out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Definitely fat to trim at LGC - many mid-level managers promoted from assistant level lack true 'industry' experience, which slows progress in many departments (i.e. many production execs have never set foot on a set and have difficulty understanding line-items on budgets they approve). Questionable personnel kept on/added through M&A deals that don't aid the company's progress and development.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Lionsgate as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great environment, you will see how the business really works, fast paced, creative tornado, and there is not a day that goes by without you asking yourself, "Is this really my job." Awesome.

    Cons

    Traffic. It is in Santa Monica, therefore, if you do not live in Santa Monica, the commute you face will be very very heavy.
